Who better than the National Guitar Workshop and DayJams, America's first rock day camp, to get you started on the guitar? They know learning to play guitar is not about studying---it's about playing. It's not called "working" the guitar, it's called "playing" the guitar, so it should be FUN! Veteran guitar educator and National Guitar Workshop co-founder Nathaniel Gunod has created this method to make learning easy and enjoyable. If you want to rock out, do you want to spend hours trying to figure out how to read music, and then plunk out "The Old Gray Mare?" We didn't think so. No, we think you should learn power chords, boogie patterns, bluesy note bending, and sliding. In short, this is not your dad's guitar method! Put down that pencil, pick up that guitar, open this book, and PLAY!

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"
